AI Assists in Therapeutic Monoclonal Antibodies Development
AI Assists in Therapeutic Monoclonal Antibodies Development
Since 1985, about 100 independent monoclonal antibodies (mAb) have been developed for use as drugs. mAb is a homogeneous preparation of antibodies (or antibody fragments). The protein sequence of each antibody in the product is the same. Therefore, it is expected that the antigen recognition site, affinity, biological interaction and downstream biological effects of each antibody are the same. This distinguishes mAbs from polyclonal antibodies, which have heterogeneous protein sequences and recognize different epitopes on the same antigen. Some basic facts about therapeutic monoclonal antibodies Technology is used to modify and mass-produce mAbs, so that they can be used as therapeutic drugs in patients. Initial antibody selection-the key to determining the effectiveness of mAbs is the quality of the interaction between the hypervariable region and the target antigen, also known as complementarity-determining region (CDR).

New Drug Combination Could Control Blood Sugar and Weight In Diabetes
New Drug Combination Could Control Blood Sugar and Weight In Diabetes
Scientists have shown that adding an experimental cancer drug to a widely used diabetes treatment improves blood sugar control and weight loss in mice, according to a study published on 22nd, Dec. in eLife. The results pave the way for clinical studies of the new drug combination as a more effective long-term treatment for millions of people with diabetes and obesity. Glucagon-like peptide 1 agonists (GLP-1 analogs) are a relatively new class of drugs that reduce blood sugar levels and lower body weight. They partially function by binding to the glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor on pancreatic beta cells, which leads the cells to produce insulin. But not all patients achieve normalization of blood glucose control with GLP-1 drugs, and very few achieve full reversal of obesity. "We have previously shown that prolonged association of the GLP-1 agonists with the glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor supports insulin secretion in pancreatic beta cells," explains project team

New Nanoparticle Can Kill Cancer Cells Efficiently And Selectively
New Nanoparticle Can Kill Cancer Cells Efficiently And Selectively
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich researchers have developed a novel type of nanoparticle that efficiently and selectively kills cancer cells, thus opening up new therapeutic options for the treatment of tumors. Many chemotherapeutic agents used to treat cancers are associated with side-effects of varying severity, because they are toxic to normal cells as well as malignant tumors. This has motivated the search for effective alternatives to the synthetic pharmaceuticals with which most cancers are currently treated. The use of calcium phosphate and citrate for this purpose has been under discussion for some years now, since they lead to cell death when delivered directly into cells, while their presence in the circulation has little or no toxic effect. The problem consists in finding ways to overcome the mechanisms that control the uptake of these compounds into cells, and ensuring that the compounds act selectively on the cells one wishes to eliminate.

Genome Editing In Plant—Targeted Modification of The Genome
By transferring genes or genetic elements with known functions to superior crop varieties, genetically modified (GM) crops with beneficial properties can be produced. Despite the promise that GM crops can contribute to global food security, the use of GM crops is affected by largely unproven health and environmental safety issues. The government regulatory framework aimed at maintaining human and environmental biosafety has created a huge cost barrier to the rapid and widespread adoption of new genetically modified properties. As a result, the advantages of transgenic properties have been limited to a few cultivated crops. Genome editing is defined as a collection of advanced molecular biology techniques that facilitate precise, efficient and targeted modification of genome sites. The risks involved in changing the genome through the use of genome editing techniques are significantly lower than those associated with genetically modified crops, because most edits only

Custom-built Spetec peristaltic pumps in the biotechnology sector
For laboratory equipment Spetec offers costum-build peristaltic pumps for an enormous range of applications Many different and varied pump types are in use both in technology in general and in daily life. These can be used to transport all types of materials. The most important pump types include piston pumps, centrifugal pumps, diaphragm pumps and peristaltic tube pumps. If these are used as part of a process, for example to transport fluids, then we speak about mechanical process engineering. In recent years, it has become ever more important to be able to meter fluid quantities in the microlitre range as biotechnology processes involving higher concentrations of active ingredients have come to the fore to respond to the need for process optimization. These demand high precision on the part of the employed pump technology, coupled with low pressure and volumetric flow pulsation, a high level of resistance against many different types of fluids, and the greatest possible service life. This pulsation-free metering of fluids by peristaltic pumps has been made possible, for
